Looking forward to seeing these designs come into fruition. Best of luck with the endeavor!!!

I just bolted up my Cycra hand guards to my 2011 KTM 250 utilizing Cycra's Solution as the newer triple clamps on the KTM have the rearward facing triple clamp bolts that make traditional clamping impossible.

The mount itself felt quite heavy but I thought a centimeter of aluminum would hopefully resist the torsional twists of crashing. One crash later and i had torsionally twisted the aluminum mount, something I thought impossible, and bent the bolts. Joy.

You're working with a simple, yet purely functional method to removing the shear forces from the handlebar end bolt mount, awesome I'll be getting some sets of those. On the other side of the coin quite an elaborate solution to designing an upper clamp for the dampener. Great to see the efforts being put forth I'll be touching base with you guys when back in the states in a few months.

Best of luck.
